Yankees | Kevin Youkilis could return Friday

New York Yankees 3B Kevin Youkilis (back) could return to the team Friday, May 31, assuming he doesn't have any setbacks during rehab games Wednesday, May 29, and Thursday, May 30.

Fantasy Tip: The team has been extremely cautious with Youk up to this point, but it looks as though he's finally nearing a return. Jayson Nix will lose extensive playing time when Youkilis arrives. Youkilis isn't the same hitter he was with Boston, but he'll be serviceable and can give you a boost in leagues that count on-base percentage.
